Yep - that's where I had all of my treatment and surgeries done. Dr. Victor Fazio was my surgeon from 1979-1984. I also went back for a check up in the mid 90's due to some pain later finding out it was adhesions. He was the only surgeon I saw there for my CD. I was admitted through there emergency room after being transported from a hospital in the Canton area... they didn't want to perform the surgery as it was so involved. Fazio met me in the ER and took me as a patient.
I also had my hysterectomy done there by Dr. Gidwani. She was from India. And did not have a very good bedside manner at all. BUT she was good at what she did.
I saw a Dr. George Rankin, I think he worked in conjunction with Dr. Fazio in managing medications... but I don't think he was a surgeon. He was a bit older than Fazio at that time.
CCF is a huge facility as you probably know. Don't be alarmed. Just know that they are, IMO, one of the premier facilities in the US. Maybe I'm a little biased because they saved my life. It was really intimidating to me at the time because I was so young. And it just such a big facility.
I notice from the below website that Dr. Fazio is now the department chair of colorectal surgery. I just loved his bedside manner. And of course the Aussie accent.
I have to admit that I still remember the ID number that I was given back then. 23 years later... it's just like a second social security number!
I wish you the best of luck. I believe you have chosen a premier facility. Do you have a name of someone you will be seeing there yet? If there is anything I can help you with, I'd be glad to.
